Obama gets 4 superdelegate endorsements so far today
“In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Senator Obama worked to help address the needs of our Gulf Coast communities. As the Gulf Coast continues to rebuild, other cities have faced tragic disasters across this country. Therefore, it is critical that this country's infrastructure and emergency response systems are evaluated and rebuilt to sustain our cities and protect our families. What happened in Louisiana should never happen again.
I have learned firsthand that a unified constituency can make what seems impossible, possible. Senator Obama represents a new generation of leadership, one that can help heal the divisions of the past and unify this country so that together we can build a stronger future. - Ray Nagin
And from Rep Joe Donnelly (IN)
"Today, I am pleased to announce my support for Barack Obama. At a time when too many Americans have lost faith in their government, Senator Obama can move us beyond the politics of stalemate and gridlock that has kept us from meeting the monumental challenges of our time: our dependence on foreign oil, a health care gap that leaves tens of millions uninsured, the steady deterioration of our manufacturing base, and an economy that is not working for working people.
Former Colorado Governor and DNC Chair Roy Romer has just endorsed Barack Obama on a conference call. Announcing because the Colorado state convention is this Saturday and it will help to make better decisions regarding Florida and Michigan. Says the race is over and Obama's lead cannot be overcome.
Washington DC Democratic Party Chair Anita Bonds has also endorsed Obama
The announcement was impromptu and prompted, she said, by Mayor Adrian M. Fenty (D) who put her on the spot at a meeting of Democratic delegates in the John A. Wilson Building last night and asked if she was supporting Obama.
"I said, 'Okay,'" Bonds said in her first interview about the subject.
